Ohio sighting of the day: a bald eagle, flying near the railroad museum in Conneaut (KAHN-nee-utt), Ohio. I asked the women staffing the museum desk whether eagle sightings were common in the area. Yes and no. They’re often seen around the harbor on Lake Erie, and some are thought to nest near a highway bridge over a nearby creek. Still, they hadn’t seen any over *that* part of Conneaut. I was with my brother John and my dad; John said it was the first time he had ever seen a bald eagle “in the wild.” Wild enough, I guess.
No picture of it, though. The above is a view of the museum (the old New York Central station).
